Active Sponsored Projects
Adoption of Open Source in science and engineering education
FOSSEE project is part of the National Mission on Education through ICT with the thrust area being "Adaptation and deployment of open source simulation packages equivalent to proprietary software, funded by MHRD, based at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB).
Interactive visualization of weather data using Mayavi
This project is part of the NMITLI sponsored project on Mesoscale modelling for monsoon related weather predictions - Phase II. This project involves several different organizations including NAL, JNCASR, TIFR, Encore and IIT Bombay. All project positions for this project are filled. The project ends in September, 2009.
The goal was to visualize atmospheric weather data using Mayavi.
The project is directly relevant to improving weather modelling. There is a significant impact on lives of people in India if the models can be improved. Good visualization tools will go a long way towards this. The entire project is one of national importance.
Simulation of Horizontal axis wind turbines
This involved the computational simulation of horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs).
